August 23 (Manila time and Nevada time) marked a two-faced day for the world. Two faces from two Filipinos.


A certain Rolando Mendoza, a disgruntled former senior inspector from the Manila Police District, took 25 people hostage in an attempt to get his job back. 9 of them were released, 1 escaped, 7 were injured and 8 were killed.

I'll enumerate my opinion:

1. Mendoza's brother shouldn't resist the arrest and don't get me started on the other Mendoza's on the site. They're not the victims that night.

2. Media blow-by-blow was a huge mistake! It was very obvious that Mendoza's watching the news from the bus. Graphic live feed, I even heard media men laughing as the shots we're fired on their direction. And Mike Enriquez' "utak!". Come on!

3. Uzi, not the submachine gun but the UZI-zeros! No wonder a teen-ager got injured, I'm not saying he deserves it, but we should stop this UZI thing!

4. SWAT: Should We ATtack? Sana Wag Akong Tamaan? and the list goes on..

What happened to the tourist bus on that day, as we all Filipinos know is an isolated case. Philippines is a very safe place for tourist, Manila-scene is just a minor minor place compared to the rest of the Philippines.

We apologize and would like to give our condolences to the family of the tourists whose lives were taken.



Maria Venus Bayonito Raj took the 5th spot in the Miss Universe 2010 beauty pageant. A towering Bicolana, 5ft 9in whose vital stats are, WOW, 35-22-35.

She was the last contestant to be called on the Top 15. Wanna see some reactions? see the video below.

She placed 3rd on the swimsuit competition and was called for the top 10.

She placed 5th on the gown and was included in the top 5. Which means Q&A na ni ka ernie baron.

The famous question from a Baldwin: "What is one big mistake that you've made in your life, and what did you do to make it right?"

Raj raj raj: "In my 22 years of existence, I can say that there is nothing major, major...I mean, problem that I've done in my life, because I am very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So, thank you so much that I am here. Thank you, thank you so much!"

My opinion(s):

1. Maganda sya.
2. Maganda diction nya.
3. Sexy.
4. Matalino sya, Cum Laude.
5. Mahaba exposure nya sa TV, kesa yun iba di man lang nahagip ng camera.
6. Major major is OK, kaso sana Bongang-bonga na lang.


AUGUST 23, 2010. One day. Two faces. Two people. A man who put us in the dark and a woman who shed some light.

On the hostage drama:
Yeah, I heard some UZI laughing on the background. Another person that needs to be questioned is the driver. The moment he escaped from the bus, he confirmed that all of the hostages are dead. It was like a go signal to the policemen to proceed with the assault and get Mendoza dead or alive.

It was a very sad day for the Filipinos and to our friends from Hong Kong. Our nation is actually in the right track when Aquino took his post as our “new” President. Everyone is very hopeful and positive that this is the start of a “new” Philippines. The country is starting to regain the trust and confidence of its people, but because of this major major mistake, we are not just back to zero, we scored negative on the global scale.

Our prayers for the souls of the victims and our condolences goes to the families of the victims of the Aug 23 Quirino Bloodshed.


On the major major thing:
It's just so frustrating for we are looking for something that will uplift our spirits from the "yesterday's disgrace". t then again, she did her best and being on the tough five (as Janina said) was not a minor minor achievement. Still, it was a great job!

On the video:
It was like their World Cup favorite football team scored and was able to win the match.
